This is one of the very best courses I have ever taken at university. The author, Dr. Allenby, is a dynamic and impassioned person. This book should be read by every engineer. It is about ESEM, Earth Systems and Engineering Management. It is a reasoned, in-depth and edifying look at our anthropogenic earth. This means that humans and the earth are now inseparable in their interactions. It shines the light of reason on the "sustainability" movement. It treats the issue of what to do and how to go about understanding the complex earth systems and engage in a reasoned unification of ideals and purpose so that we may all benefit and go forward. He makes the case that it is a very complex problem, and explains his 14 principles that are very enlightening. A must read!
